Back in the Bury St Edmunds area, we had 2 nights at the Bush Inn in Shimpling (GBP65 per night)

And then had 1 night at the very old (13thC) Abbey Hotel in Bury

Then it was 2 days with Steve and Carole on Mersea Island to help celebrate her 50+ birthday and to catch up with our friend and author Colin Bowles who popped down from London on Monday

Finally it was back to the Granary Suite at Brighthouse Farm in Lawshall for what would become our last 8 days in England. From there, we visited Cambridge again, Ipswich, Woodbridge, Southwold, Snape Maltings and also Grantchester Meadows where there is an idyllic path alongside the Cam River leading to the historic Orchard Tea Garden (started in 1897) where the poet Rupert Brooke and his fellow "neo-pagans" often met
